used to be a line item in the budget, but you recall a couple of years ago there was a gas tax swap, a complicated maneuver to ensure that transportation funds continued to flow. the result is that the state transit assistance is now based on the details sales tax receipts. that is a fluctuating amount of money and therefore we only rely on the projections over the course of the year. so far it looks pretty good. the other big news is that the state is looking pretty good. troop prop 30 passed, significant dollars in projected revenue. so i think we find ourselves in a cautiously optimistic time. we'll be following that as the year unfolds. we participate in that process through various trade associations and our meeting, in fact, next week with the commit staff working on the bill to have california's law conform for the federal law. cap and trade another very large statewide issue. san francisco as a city family is engaging on that through our advocacy, our lobbyists, as well as the league of cities, california state association of counties and others who have an interest in maki

of the issue is a discussion or lack thereof between the assessor's office and the tax collector's office. i remember years ago trying to pay my property taxes and being told i am so sorry you can't do that yet. i found it odd that they do not want my money. the process then was that they had not figured out the escape assessment; they were still working on numbers from years earlier. they knew those based on my purchase price but they were not ready to collect the money for four more years. i knew they would be collecting at some point so i set it aside. i can appreciate that so many people don't. if i were asked, i would be happy to lend a hand and solve these problems. >> it is not the role of the assessment board to facilitate a process between our citizens and our homeowners or property owners but for me it is something that as citizens of san francisco, help push to make it easier for people to understand and easier to get a rebate. >> when i had my appeal i talk with five or six people who did not understand the comp period, were certain dates. they had come to the wrong dates. i hel

it civilly would be a local scaled acceleration of affordable tax and co generation of energy efficiency and other local renewable demand site resource as far as the conceptual approach and the product definition this is seasonally what was referred to in the industry as energy as a service and that means that you get out of the old kilowatt hour paradigm that goes back to the 1930's where you are selling hours of power into a service approach where you are standard dyeing on site affordable tax and building retrofits as standard components of that service we focus on a no money down approach to energy efficiency and renewables this would not only require any kind of a late premium to the customers but a rate discount for those customers and is so energy efficiency with a discount and no money down and that is product differentiation that p g and e does not offer and utilities do not offer but we are uniquely poised to offer. this would apply to both the business community as well as residential customers. and so, as far as the approach to development we are really

of dollars in sales tax, license fees, paraphernalia payroll taxes. the original holy bagel is still in business on 24th street. it's now going on 34 years. gary has only benefited the city of san francisco through community outreach, donations. he has donated food products and money from anywhere from casa delas mad reses to the san francisco unified school district. i believe it's the job of city and county of san francisco to create business and i don't think this is the proper venue to vet what the processes of the department of public works are, which were followed wreckly. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker. >> my name is nigel hall and i remember a small business in marin and i come into the city frequently and invariably i'm in a rush. you don't stop in a store to get a coffee when you are busy rushing from one place to another. and the food trucks and coffee trucks are a great addition to the city. they satisfy a very specific need and it's very different to the market for people who go to a specific location to get coffee or get food. the city is very entrepreneurial

benefit on commercial buildings but then, tax exempt bonds for p uc owned generator and is that would include the wind farm and other large generation in the city and so this approach was confirmed by pea body and l.a. s c o year ago and the use for taxable bonds is legal and there is no basis as far as i have ever heard that it's illegal to issue revenue bonds that are taxable and it comes down to whether they are taxable and in this case we have divide them accordingly and we also think there is a role for tax equity, investment in this program and so we are looking at that as an alternative source of financing and the h bond authority was called the solar neighborhoods charter amendment and the whole idea of that was finance customer opened in san francisco and so nothing new in that and nothing that local power has invented in the hearings that is all in the record. >> feinstein your club wants to say something. >>> welcome. >> thank you commissioners. i would like to say something that this is agenda is very confusing and so if this is the last time that we are going to to

or not they wanted to add additional revenue, raise taxes or fees in some way, have additional revenue to their budget and they could see what additional investment could be afforded if they made that choice. this is a summary other groups that we reached. i would note that we did ask for volunteer information about participants' zip codes, and incoming demographic information. only about 55 percent of the participants actually gave us that. what you are seeing here is a map of the 55 percent of the participants who did give their zip code noting about 15 percent of the respondents were not san francisco residents or indicated they were not san francisco residents. these were some of the findings. this chart shows the choices that participants made when they created their budgets. the choices they made about investing in operations and maintenance. the dark blue bars show the choices about investments in transit operations and maintenance. the height of the bar is a percentage of respondents made the choice. 80 percent chose to increase the amount of investment in transit operations an
